When Tab Berg, a respected Sacramento political consultant, says that Measure R - the 15-year quarter-cent sales tax designed to fund a new arena and more - "believes the arena effort can't be salvaged" and it's an understatement, well then, it's over.
The results of Berg's poll?
MEASURE R (Sales tax measure)
What a disaster. Absolute disaster.
Thomas Enterprises is wasting its money by throwing it at the pro campaign at this late stage. The Maloofs would do well to hold a press conference to tell fans they're going to work on a deal for the next county ballot. (This letter to the fans isn't quite the right note - no one will ever feel sorry for billionaires. Ever.)
The ship has sunk. Let's just focus on the season to come now. Screw this politics crap.
